Art, Life & Earth. THROUGH THE EYES OF A DEAF SNOWBOARDING MUSIC NUT.

I can’t stop watching this. It defies explanation. Why would large adult animals attack a boat in such a suicidal manner? Nuts. I’ve been terrified of fish since I was a kid so I’d be like the boat owner’s nephew Matthew, hiding in terror.

My brother, nephews and a friend go “fishing” down a small drainage ditch in the flooded Spoon River.
They counted 70+ 5-10lb. Asian Carp once they stopped the boat. The funniest part, is that Matthew, my youngest nephew, is curled up in the fetal position in the front of the boat the entire time, and you never see him! Also it is absolutely infinitely more hilarious when viewed in slow motion. Bood Haman

Silver carp have become notorious for being easily frightened by boats and personal watercraft, which causes them to leap high into the air. The fish can jump up to 8–10 feet (2.5–3 m) into the air, and numerous boaters have been injured by collisions with the fish.[3] According to the EPA, “reported injuries include cuts from fins, black eyes, broken bones, back injuries, and concussions.”.[4] Silver carp can grow to 100 pounds (45 kg) in mass.
